Louis Boston

Maybe we’ve heard where Louis will relocate when its lease is up next year; maybe we haven’t. What we can confirm, though, is that while everyone has been buzzing over the Boston style bastion’s next address, Louis’s focus on ahead-of-the-curve finds for women, men, and home has continued undistracted. In addition to long-stocked designers like Marni and Proenza Schouler, the arrival of knit whiz Kimberly Ovitz and stealth favorite the Row appeals to the current value-obsessed mindset. Meanwhile, the revitalizing powers of the skin-care department, recently boosted by 3 Lab Series and Rodin Olio Lusso, puts chain department stores to shame. Big move or no, here’s betting Louis stays in one place: on top.
